The Incheon Korean Air Jumbos are the South Korean men’s club volleyball champions for the 2nd time in the club history.



The top-seed Incheon Korean Air Jumbos recovered 2 times in the series of the 2020/21 Korean Men’s Dodram V-League playoff finals against no.2 Seoul Woori Card Wibee before winning the championship title – the 2nd in total (2018 and 2021). Ultimately, the team coached by Italian Roberto Santilli prevailed in Game 5 by a 3-1 (24-26, 28-26, 27-25, 25-17) in front of its sown fans and wrote a new chapter in the club history, winning both the regular season and playoffs for the first time ever.

Cuban Yosvany Hernández was Jumbos’ top scorer in a decider with 27 points, including 5 aces. Portuguese Alexandre Ferreira tallied 26 points for Woori, who took part in the championship face-off for the first time since entering the V-League in 2013. The Jumbos outside hitter Jung Ji-Seok was awarded MVP of the competition.
